Liverpool moves to sign Kyanno Silva from Benfica...Dortmund and Atalanta are rivals Transfers

The academy has been enriched in recent years, led by England U-21 midfielder Harvey Elliott, who joined Liverpool from Fulham when he was 16 years old. Young players such as Ben Doak, Stefan Bajcetic, and Conor Bradley, who have gradually secured playing time in the first team, have also moved on at a young age.

They have won the competition in the academy and have earned their place in the team. Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, which is no longer able to acquire players under the age of 18 from Europe due to the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, have stepped up scouting in England, as well as in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

Meanwhile, transfers are possible as long as the player is over the age of 18, and there is a lot of activity around the world. According to Football Insider, Liverpool has made contact with Benfica U-23 to acquire 18-year-old winger Kyanno Silva.

The winger, who was born in the Netherlands and has also represented the country’s U-19 national team, can play primarily on the right wing and also on the opposite left wing.

Although he has no first-team experience, he has shown promising potential in youth-level competition.

Liverpool has many promising players on the right wing. Scottish U-21 international Doak is at the top of the list, and Kaide Gordon is also looking to fully recover from a lengthy injury layoff.

In addition, a senior player may join the club next summer as a replacement for smoldering Egyptian international Mohamed Salah, who is likely to leave the club.

However, it makes sense to have a young player compete with a winger who can use both feet. Another attractive point is that the player’s contract with Benfica runs until June 2024.

With the chance to acquire a rising Dutch star without spending a transfer fee, will Liverpool jump at it…?
